Metro Pets

By Sharon Gomes Thomas


After a long day at the office, what is the first thing most of us do before we head out for an evening with our cronies? Freshen up of course. A lipstick application and a misting of our favorite perfume, and we’re ready for cocktail hour.

Well, it’s almost as simple for pets to freshen up their fur too. It’s unlikely that Fluffy has a date at the neighborhood lounge, but if you’re toting your pet along on a visit to your boyfriend’s, then you might want to spray her with one of these yummy scents.


The cat in your life will be purring for Oh My Cat!, a cat perfume that can be worn by both you and your feline friend. Top notes comprise mandarin, bergamot and rosewood. It also features olive leaf, apparently a feline favorite, which can only be detected by cats. Developed in collaboration with French veterinarians, it comes with an applicator – cats hate to be sprayed – so you would simply stroke the scent onto your pet’s fur. Let your feline get sensually scented by picking up a bottle at


If your sexy beast growls rather than purrs, then he would probably love Sexy Beast’s Signature Fragrance for dogs. It’s a blend of bergamot and vanilla-infused musk combined with natural patchouli, mandarin and nutmeg oils. This distinct eau de parfum will keep your dog smelling fresh and clean long after the trip to the groomer. The low-alcohol fragrance is formulated specifically for a pooch’s sensitive sense of smell. Get a bone-shaped bottle at Also available at Henri Bendel


Turn heads and not noses with the scent of Juicy Crittoure Dog Pawfum. Brought to you by the fashion juggernaut of Juicy Couture, you can match your dog’s new aroma with other succulent offerings from their pet fashion line. Available at Juicy stores:

New York
105 5th Avenue
268 Bleecker Street
860 Madison Avenue

Try not to use one of your favorite perfumes on your pet, even if it is organic or hypo-allergenic. You never know what may irritate her skin.
